Sara Gorman's Pillbags

So, yet another product review.  Although this time, I purchased these items for myself, and am writing a post, not because I was asked to, but because I love them so, so much.

Sara Gorman, one of my blogger friends, and fellow person with lupus, after taking on the book world, with her book, Despite Lupus, has taken on the medication world, creating innovative and pretty cases for transporting medication.

These are so much pretty and more convenient than the plastic clunkers I’m used to carrying around.  And they are so unobtrusive.  In fact, I’d like to show them off because they are so pretty.

There are two types available.  One is the pillfold, which has eight pockets, one for each day of the week and an extra.  Each day has two sections, one for day and one for night.  It also has a little hook so you can hang it up.  The other is the pillpouch.  The pillpouch has six elastic bands that fit around standard-size prescription bottles, and features a drawstring closure.

I waited anxiously for these to be available, and ordered mine the day they became available.  As soon as they arrived, I was smitten.  I love the pattern (I got Bordeaux), although there are three other patterns currently available, and I love the pillbox hat logo on them.  They are very classy.

What a great way to be a stylish sick chick, don’t you think? 

And I love that the linings are pink! 

These will be indispensable for traveling.  They will be easy to find and pull out of my bag, if necessary, and they certainly take up less room than plastic bags and boxes filled with pills and bottles.      

Sara has really taken her illness experience and turned it into something pretty darn amazing.  I am grateful for her creativity. 

She is truly an inspiration.

And I have to wonder if the concept for the pillpouch that holds prescription bottles came from those toddler hats that her two young daughters might wear.  That’s what it reminds me of, anyway. 

Even better, 5% of the proceeds from every sale go to a lupus charity.

I think Sara and I should collaborate on some pretty, fancy case for taking syringes and injection pens with you.
